Everyone receives their MBE from the Queen, with a personaly signed citation, but the presentation of the award takes place over a number of days, and it is simply the luck of the draw as to whether it is the queen or the princess who is doing the honors that day.

There are no limits applied to the total number of members of the fourth and fifth classes, but no more than 858 Officers (OBE) and 1464 Members (MBE) may be appointed per year.

Mr Segelman really deserves it, he and his family help so many people out there who are in need and cares for them in such a special way, yet he is so humble and kind. Yosher Koach
From a very grateful person!

Nice to see someone receive this special honour! who nominated him and Rabbi Sufrin? Re the clouds today was actually very nice sunny day.

The weather in England is just to give the Americans something to talk about

ur HEAD is in the CLOUDS

The sky is not even shown in the picture – so it must be that your head is in the clouds!
Having said that, it is winter – (ever heard of that?) so clouds would not be unusual at this time of year.

proud to be English

Why do Americans always knock the weather in England…..why, it never rains and is never cloudy in NY?!

Mr Segalman deserves this honour, he is a very humble person. Not full of himself

Question
November 24, 2009 5:31 pm

How many people get this honor per year? Is it like something that a lot of people get, it’s just special when it’s a Lubavitcher because of the kiddush Hashem? Or is it very rare and for some reason, the queen seems to be favoring chabad? (which is a good thing of course)

Either way it’s great and it’s a big kiddush Hashem – so mazel tov!!

Actually, Rabbi Sudak received an OBE which is a slightly higher award. See here for more info http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Order_of_the_British_Empire
